Outlook 2007The general feel of Microsoft Office 2007 beta 2 is very similar to Office 2003, which means there will not be a significant learning curve for those making the migration. One noticeable feature change is the tighter integration of Tasks and To Do Lists with the rest of the normal views. This comes in the form of a To Do Bar that sits on the outside of Outlook's main window no matter what internal view you may be using --- Mail, Calendar, Contacts, or Tasks. So no matter where you are in Outlook you can see what it is you are supposed to be doing.
